DMG School Project Master Class Series
October 12-14, 2018
Learn from Duncan McClellan’s mentor…DMG School Project continues to bring the world of glass to you!
Experience the wonder of designing and creating your very own, one of kind piece of glass art under guidance of the world-renowned, New York based artist, John Brekke!
Brekke’s work is known for its focus on the visual line in abstract as well as figurative contexts. His work is shown at the Duncan McClellan Gallery, as well as internationally in a number of permanent collections, including the Smithsonian American Art Museum-Renwick Gallery, Corning Museum of Glass and Museum of Art & Design.
During this workshop, students will learn the basics of the fascinating “Graal” technique, inspired by the art nouveau glass of Daum and Galle, and developed in Sweden by the Orrefors Studio in the early 20th century.
“Graals” use both hot and cold glass working techniques, giving participants experiences from both worlds.
You will be able to draw and engrave into a pre-blown “blank”, which will then be encased in an outer layer of glass and blown into the desired shape.
The three-day workshop will include studio time, with lunches, as well as entree to a VIP collectors’ event with visiting guest artist Claire Kelly, cocktails and dinner during the Saturday evening St. Petersburg Art Walk, plus Sunday brunch and lecture with Kelly.
Kelly is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design and will be premiering a new body of work in an exhibition at the Duncan McClellan Gallery, opening October 13.
The workshop and concurrent events will take place on the grounds of the DMGlass complex, which houses the Duncan McClellan Gallery, the DMG School Project, and a working hot glass studio.
DMGlass is one of the exciting anchor facilities of Florida’s increasingly famous “Glass Coast”.
This exciting opportunity is sponsored by the DMG School Project, a nonprofit branch of DMGlass in St. Petersburg, dedicated to arts education, and specifically education through exposing the public to the multi-disciplinary art of glass.
Through classes, demonstrations and lectures, learning about glass art can be lots of fun!
